Fall Cabin Weekend

 We spent last weekend up at my Brother's cabin.  We always have such a good time there. 
We went into Vernal for the the day to see the Dinosaur Quarry.
 We went there many years ago when Brianna was 2.  She went around roaring at all the dinosaur bones.
The Quarry has been closed for about 7 years because the building wasn't safe and it just recently reopened. 

 The  whole wall is filled with bones.  It's really worth a visit.

 Grandma came with.
 The girls also got a Jr. Ranger badge.  That is their 7th of the year.
 We also got to see petroglyphes
 And explored a cabin form the 1800's
 More rock art.
 Two sweet girls.
 Last month at a neighbors garage sale Jon bought a raft.  I'm not really a boat person
 But daddy and his girls had a great time rowing around.
We had such a fun relaxing weekend.  We can't wait to go again.

lost tooth

So I missed blogging about so big events last month  So I'll play catch up.  Just a few days after school started, my baby Carly lost her first tooth. 
So cute even with a gappy smile.  Love that kid!

When we were on vacation this summer inYellowstone we met a woman at the falls painting an oil painting. I got her card and an when we got home I contacted her and we bought it.
I'm so excited to have it.  I'm not really big on souvenirs, but this is my favorite spot in the whole world and it is really a beautiful painting.

When we were on our trip this summer I found a boxed set of all the Little House on the Prairie books.  I loved these books and the show when I was young and I couldn't resist buying them for my girls.

So we read a chapter every night and it is my very favorite part of my day.  I love these book and I love snuggling up with my girls to read with them every night.  It's funny to me to see how much Mary and Laura are like my little girls. Tonight we finished the 2nd book and it's kind of a cliff hanger the girls are so excited to start the next book.  I really love to read and I hope my girls are leaning to love reading too.
What are you reading to your kids?
